  • Vacuum Breakers

  • Vaccum BreakersWhen a steam system shuts down, the remaining steam condenses into water, which takes up a much smaller volume than the original steam. This creates a vacuum, which can damage equipment if not relieved of in a timely way. Vacuums prevent gravity draining systems from working properly, which can lead to frozen condensate and burst piping.

    Vacuum Breakers are simple, reliable devices that provide a positive means to automatically relieve or “break” an unwanted vacuum condition.

    Available in sizes from 1/8” up to 4” NPT.

    ⅜” & ¾” NPT is also available with field adjustable range from ¼” to 20” (8 – 508mm) Hg Vacuum for use on closed vessels and piping systems to control induced vacuum within safe limits.

    Features:

    • Brass, bronze or stainless steel construction with threaded connection.
    • Pre-set and adjustable models for steam or hot water use.

    Applications:

    • Protection of pressure vessels and piping collapse from vacuum conditions.
    • Prevention of freezing due to excess condensate remaining in the system.
    • Reduction of water hammer due to vacuum caused by control valve operation.
